The final whistle

I can’t ever recall such a close thing at the end of a football season. I’m not an avid fan, I haven’t been to an actual game for quite a few years but I do keep an eye on my team and especially when they are this close to relegation. We started the afternoon just outside the bottom three, then we were well in the bottom three as we conceded a goal, then we were clear again as other matches went against other teams fighting for survival. Then we conceded another two goals and were once against well stumped. And after all of this it was still only half time! The main man must have given a stirring speech at half time because they came out fighting and pulled a goal back quite quickly – clear again. Then the other teams equalised or went into the lead and we were going down. Again we scored but another team scored also and so we were still on tender hooks as we were neck a neck with a local team on points AND goal difference – we were just edging ahead due to goals scored. In the last minute of extra time of our rivals match they conceded a goal and we were safe. Phew, what a draining, emotional roller coaster ride, so many twists and turns right up to the final, final whistle. But I do feel a little sad for our local team who are now relegated.

The Boy B had come home for the weekend as he had an invite to the match. It’s not long since we’ve seen him to be fair but it is still nice to have him home for a wee while even though, as I type, he’s already back up north again. I must admit I love having all three under the same roof even if it tends to be manic whilst The Boy B is around winding the girls up and encouraging impish behaviour as he does.

Grumpy’s GCSE’s are in full swing and Tattyhead seems to have an envious social calendar at the moment. I’ve a list as long as my arm of things I need to get done (and nice things I want to do) but my one aim for this week is to do up this little item here.

We picked this up from T’hubby’s Dad’s flat when it was emptied last year and has lived at The Hovel for the last few months but it doesn’t really ‘go’ so I’m hoping to transform it somehow, give it a look that I’ll be happy to have gracing my wall. Watch this space.

Thanks for dropping by and please feel free to leave me a comment.

WEll that was an exciting match! M was the same with the rugby on Sunday, I got a call at half time instructing me to turn on BBC1, 'the main guy has been knocked out!' Think he was ok, just a bit dazed!
